For the first show back into 2017 Iasha is joined by Matt and a very new voice to the show, Sinead Burniston, a fellow Holloway graduate and theatre lover.
Matt reviews the Lego Batman film, we hark back to some old conversations from 2016 including a run down of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, how bad Suicide Squad was and Iasha talks musicals and lack of tap with Half a Sixpence.
Next show Matt’s reviewing Fifty Shades Darker, and if there is a show not to miss this year, it’s that one. So much awkward.
This week on the show Iasha, Matt and Ellie are joined by Strat and Alex, doing their very first ‘Art’ on the new segment ‘Strat and Alex Do Art’.
The Blackshaw Arts Hour turned 50! We had a party with fizz, hats and party poppers.
“Played by Alexander Pankhurst, it’s an enjoyable portrayal of this geeky character who is able to precisely name different birds by their call alone. He provides a wonderful foil to Martha played by Rachel Nott, a bolshie and dominating woman. The two of them are a comically incompetent pair.”
“There is a particularly well thought out lighting and sound design by Andrew Crane who helps to transport us to the night-time Norfolk Coast and give the play some eerie atmospheric effects. The aeroplane landing lights is particularly effective. The one simple piece of set, a groyne, also works wonders.”

This week on the podcast, Matt brings us his review of Ghostbusters, a re-boot of the 1984 original.
We hear an interview with Stage Manager and friend of Blackshaw Lizzie Cooper. Lizzie talks to Ellie about how she ended up working in the industry, the shows she’s worked on recently and some of the weird and wonderful props she’s had to source.
Matt and Iasha talk about some of the recent theatre they have seen in London, including two shows at The National (The Plough and the Stars and The Deep Blue Sea) and West End Musical, Matilda. Also, back by popular demand, we play Edinburgh Roulette for the second time on The Blackshaw Arts Hour.
This week on the show, Matt and Iasha are discussing the horror genre with Green Room.
This week on the show, Iasha brings you The Blackshaw Arts Hour minus her regular co-hosts.
Richard Stratton told us his three top spooky experiences ranging from childhood all the way though to present day, a story that featured in Blackshaw’s Scare Slam last year.
Next up on the show was Beige, a piece of new writing by Dan Weatherer, performed by Richard Malado and Hayley Marie Axe and Directed by Catherine Lord at one of our regular New Writing Nights at the Horse and Stables in Lambeth.
